It’s an opportunity for tutors from around the UK meet and share ideas and tips and to hear from some exceptional musicians and tutors in a number of seminars throughout the day.
I had the pleasure of attending the following inspirational talks with the aim of adding value to my lessons for my students in the future:
- Teaching students with special educational needs- Al Summers & Ray Bradfield
- Group tuition techniques-David Millar
- Master of funk – Rob Harris -pictured above (Session guitarist of Jamiroquai /Katy Perry /Kylie / Robbie Williams fame)
- Acoustic Arrangements – Max Millingan
The first event of its kind I have attended, it was well organised and thoroughly enjoyable. I came away wowed by some exceptional guitar talents but left with a ‘jaw to the floor’ by a solo performance by Hugh Burns at the wrap up mtg.
Now to put all the ideas to use… And after that performance by Hugh, just off to ‘practice my chops’
